Watch a Plasticine Animation About Population Explosion

  • 'Crowded' is a dystopian story of our jam-packed planet

  • Tags:

    With the global population at 7.2 billion and growing at a rate of almost 400,000 people a day (!), overpopulation is as timely a topic as ever. London-based artists Andrew Khosravani and Cristina Florit Gomila explore the issue in "Crowded," a stunner of a stop-motion animation created almost entirely in plasticene.

    Over a year in the works, the piece represents the pair's desire to explore the industrialization of the natural landscape in a creative new way. According to Andrew and Cristina:

    “The denizens of Crowded amble through their ever-expanding habitat seemingly oblivious to their mutating landscape – while the voyeur sits back and inhales the swarming scenery.

    The convivial tone veils the dystopian message of the narrative. Cranes, trains and automobiles instil a sense of constant industry – as the populous swells upwards, outwards, downwards and inwards – contorting and adapting – forcing the inhabitants to recast themselves.”
